Wedding in Ireland

My husband and I want to come to Ireland with a small circle of friends to renew our wedding vows. We will have been married for 10 years and obviously having it be legal is not an issue. Are there any limitations as to where and when we can have a ceremony? Also, Do you know of any websites or anyone that I can contact with a list of possible venues and their prices? Thank you so much, Jessica Howell

Ireland & Northern Ireland Holiday

Hi My wife & I (with 2 dogs that sleep in our own car) wish to visit for 2 weeks. We thought a circular route from Dublin as we will arrive by ferry from Holyhead. Would like to stay in comfortable & varied 'value for money' accommodation offering great food etc. each night. One of us is a Vegetarian. Can you suggest some places please?

We are wanting to take our first visit to Ireland, but we also want to visit Iona in Scotland. Is there a ferry from Ireland to Iona or must you first go to England and then to Scotland? Besides Iona, we only want to tour Ireland.

Hope someone can help me with how to pronounce certain Irish names. I'm an actor about to audition for "The Beauty Queen of Leenane" for the role of Pato Dooley. I don't know how to pronounce either "Leenane" or "Pato." Is it Lee-NANE, LEE-nane, Leh-NANE, Leh-NAHN or something else? As for Pato, is it PAT-oh, PATE-oh or something else? Someone please help!!

Moher or Loop Head?

I'll be in Ireland in a couple of weeks, traveling with two friends who have never been there before. We'll be driving down from the Connemara, through Clare on the way to Dingle, and will probably only have time to visit one area of cliffs. I can't decide whether we should go to the Cliffs of Moher (which I have been to before), and although it's dramatic, it's also very touristy and built up, or...take them down to the cliffs at

Dingle or Sligo?

This September will be my first trip to Ireland, and I can't decide on my travel agenda. I don't want to be constantly driving and packing and unpacking, so have booked three days in Dublin and three days in Doolin. And don't know if I should then head north to Sligo, or south to Dingle for another three days? They both look lovely. My family of ancestry is from Kerry, which makes Dingle appealing. At the same time, I've heard that
